Price Call for Best Price Offer
This 1989 Porsche 911 Carrera coupe was refinished by Yves Thibeault under the direction of artist Jean-Pierre Lafrance as number two in the Art Cars Project, in which a series of artists have completed uniquely painted Porsche 911s in cooperation with the Musée National des Beaux-Arts du Québec in Canada. Power comes from a 3.2-liter flat-six paired with a five-speed manual transaxle, and features include 16″ Fuchs wheels, a sunroof, Mahogany leather upholstery, power-adjustable front seats, air conditioning, cruise control, power windows, central locking, and a Blaupunkt cassette stereo.
The oil-based custom paintwork was applied by auto-body painter Yves Thibeault, who used airbrushes, hand brushes, spray paints, markers, finger-painting, and sanding to translate Jean-Pierre Lafrance’s directives onto the car itself. The completed project is named “Masterpiece II,” and it features an abstract impressionist-inspired intermixture of bright colors against a white backdrop. Close-up photographs of the livery can be seen in the gallery below.
White 16″ Fuchs wheels have custom-painted center caps, while 205/55 front and 225/50 Dunlop SP Sport 5000 tires are mounted. The brake fluid was recently changed. The cabin features seats trimmed in Mahogany leather along with a matching dashboard, door panels, and carpets. Equipment includes power-adjustable front seats, air conditioning, cruise control, power windows, central locking, and a Blaupunkt Reno cassette stereo.
The 3.2-liter flat-six was rated for 217 horsepower and 195 lb-ft of torque when new. Recent maintenance includes an oil change and servicing the fuel injectors.
